Shopping Saturday: Lakeport Grocery

My first cousin twice removed Louise Margaret Gray owned Lakeport Grocery in Lakeport, New York. I am not sure when she purchased the store, but I know that she owned it while she was married to her third husband Leonard D. Smith. The store was later known as Fox's Lakeport Grocery after she married her fourth husband Maurice Otis Fox.

The store was a grocery and a service station. A 6-room house was attached to the store.

When Louise was in the process of retiring, a grocery store auction was held. The ad for the sale included a list of the store's contents.

Louise owned the store until at least 1973.
